using phone, any mode; am, fm, ssb, et al., it would be nice to press a button to set to send my call sign out as id, via cw, when I complete, or start my next audio cycle
In other words, when while I am use the phone modes and I realize its time it identify my station (according to the FCC rules), I press the button to sets a sequence that:
1) IF I am currently transmitting using phone, when I key up, the radio switches to cw and sends out my call sign, then switches back to phone mode I was using so I can listen to the stations, or ...
2) IF I am listening to stations (I am not transmitting, but the radio is set in a phone mode)., when I next key up to transmit in phone mode, the radio first switches to CW mode, sends my call sign out, then switches back to phone mode so I can begin to talk.,
Optionally, this feature could do it automatically after a time lapse and indicates it is going to take place, or if it has send it out.
OK, radio experts and nay-sayers, let me have it why this is not a great idea.
